, michelle obama scheduled to take the stage to talk up her husband. but there is one thing you should absolutely not expect to hear her say. and how her speech could compare with that of ann romney at the rnc. but first from fox's tuesday night live from charlotte, the democratic national convention is now officially underway. and how is this for timing? today the national debt clock topped $16 trillion for the first time in u.s. history. we'll have more on that a little later with gather are you willis. we'll three hours away from the headliners, including the first lady, michelle obama. she checked out the stage yesterday. president obama says he can not compete with the first lady, calling her the star of the obama family. >> i'm going to be at home and i'm going to be watching her with our girls and i am going to try not to let them see their daddy cry. because when michelle starts talking i start getting all misty. >> shep: tonight's other big speech, the keynote address from none other than julian castro, the mayor of san antonio, texas. he is but 37 years old and the first lati
to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
is in the spotlight. what we will hear from michelle obama. how will her speech compare with ann romney he is. personal take on her husband. >>> closing arguments as a jury is getting set to decide if drew peterson murdered his third wife. lots of news. we're glad you're with us. it is all "happening now." jenna: opening day at the democratic national convention, start of like baseball season, right? it is their tournament. their turn. i'm jenna lee. we're glad you're with us. jon: i'm jon scott. we're live in charlotte, north carolina with continuing coverage as president obama and his team make a case for a second term. this stands in stark contrast to the gop's, backs abortion rights, same-sex marriage and calls for higher taxes on the wealthiest americans. then come the speeches. tonight the first lady addresses the delegates. she is set to play up the difference between her husband and governor romney. another highlight tonight. the keynote address. san antonio mayor, julian castro, a rising young star in the democratic party is set to deliver it. he is the first latino ever tapped for t
of san antonio. finally, first lady michelle obama. this of course is not michelle obama as per speech of the national convention. she spoke about her husband four years ago at the democratic convention. her remarks run about 40 minutes. [applause] as you might imagine, for barack, running for president is nothing compared to that first game of basketball with my brother, craig. i can't tell you how much it means to have craig and my mom here tonight. like craig, i can feel my dad looking down on us, just as i've felt his presence in every grace-filled moment of my life. and at six-foot-six, i've often felt like craig was looking down on me, too, literally. but the truth is, both when we were kids and today, craig wasn't looking down on me, he was watching over me. and he has been there for me every step of the way since that clear day, february, 19 months ago, when, with little more than our faith in each other and a hunger for change, we joined my husband, barack obama, on the improbable journey that has led us to this moment. but each of us comes here also by way of our own improbab

to expectations. >> chenk, if we were going to base the election on twitter then the winner would be michelle obama. the most tweets her minute. she had 28,000 tweets per minute during we are speech, mitt romney in comparison was 14,000 tweets per minute. bill clinton did go up against football. we have to take that into consideration. we haven't even heard joe biden or president obama speak so far and already we're at 6.3 million tweets, far surpassing where the republican national convention was. what do we expect from obama tonight. >> i think it's going to be bigger than all of this, although they are going up against the music video awards on mtv. i wouldn't want to stack him against justin bieber. we saw obama for america had their first hash tag today strangely not highjacked. >> they've been highjacked by progressives. the obama campaign bought their first hash tag not highjacked. >> we saw that trending today bill clinton talking about that. i think what's been really interesting is new numbers from a pew study that came out today. how are we going to translate this, 16% have changed
will listen to first lady michelle obama. joe biden speaking earlier working to humanize and personalize this story much the way michelle did for barack obama earlier this week. we heard as well from illinois senator dick durbin, he introduced the nation to a pretty obscure illinois state senator barack obama relatively unknown back in 2008. vice president biden talked a bit about barack obama of course but what i thought was quite emotional as he said we talked about his life and dr. jill by then pointed to him and she said that it took her five times before she would marry him and that he was the love of her life. a huge cheer went up here all lot of emotion when it gabby gifford said recited the pledge of allegiance. everyone seems to be crying. i looked in the handicapped area and people were cheering for her as she walked across the stage and recited the pledge of allegiance escorted by her friend the democratic chairwoman. incredible emotion in this room and there certainly playing on a motion a great deal tonight. husbands speaking of the love for their wives and joe biden talking

was good. michelle obama's speech was good. markell rubio's speech -- marco rubio's speech last week was good. going back and forth, trying to decide which way i will leave. i think it will come down to -- you can have a talking point and you can have these things you're going to do and say you are going to do all you want. it will come down to leadership. the bottom line for me as that barack obama had the control congress his first two years, he got nothing but his own way to do what he wanted to do. i am sorry. he rammed everything three. he did it in a matter of fact way and lost respect of his fellow constituents. the last two years with the republicans are getting a bad rep, beating not want to work with someone like that. >> levy dumping in -- let me jump in on that. let's go back to the floor. >> you probably could get a greater distance -- and that it greater distance between guam of florida. we begin with the mayor of riviera speech, florida. your thoughts? >> with the speech president clinton and left side of michelle, we are going to vote for president obama. how can you

. the bottom line what i see is bill clinton gave a great speech. michelle obama gave a very personal and good speech for her husband. president obama is will give a wonderful speech tonight he is very good. and at the end of the day this is what happen what matters. monday we have the announcement that gas prices doubled and we have the highest labor in the country. and we have the highest deficit. when the speeches are done tonight tomorrow we will get the jobs report and it will show 43 months in a row over 8% unemployment. 23 million americans are out of work. at the end of the day, the speakers are nice and this is a serious election in serious times. and it comes down to whether or not president obama's policies have worked and when you look at the numbers by any real measure you have to say they have not worked. >> so the campaign seemed to be painting two different visions of america. based on perhaps similar experiences that people have undergone over the last couple of years. the romney campaign says perhaps are you not better off than you were four years ago and the obama campaign i
